A friend recently asked for a PC to be repaired, and after bringing the system back to life, I couldn't help but notice the MOHAA icon on the desktop. That's Medal of Honor: Allied Assault for all you young'uns, a cracking first-person shooter from 2002 that I poured far too much time into back in the day. Sadly, the game wouldn't load, but it did get me thinking, which other old games would be worth playing today? Super Mario Kart on the SNES would no doubt be every bit as fun.

Retro seems to be the in thing, and plenty of old games are still playable, or better still, being bought back to life via backward compatibility or a modern remastering. We want to know what's worth checking out, so for this week's question let us ask: which old video games do you still play? Let us know using the comments facility below.

Nothing taht old - systems won't load. Crysis is always something I boot up occaisonally
Heroes of Might and Magic II and III. I know there are recent ones, but they don't do it for me.
Got a stack of things from GoG recently, though I don't think any are considered Classics… just old.
I only go back to real retro games on occasion and it is usually for an hours worth of nostalgia hits and then switched off, but not too long ago I played through the original GTA and GTA2, the soundtracks and missions are still amazing even today, and the top down gameplay may be old now but it feels like a nice change/break from all the 3D games we play these days.
Another vote for Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and 3. Also regular Might and Magic 3 onwards. Whilst I have a soft spot for MM1/2 as well, I found it hard to play them last time I tried. I also sometimes try and (re)play PS2 era JRPGs, but usually bounce off them again.

I think maybe the reason I never got deeply into them (the titles I never got round to playing) back in the day are the same reasons I don't stick with them now. And the ones I *did* stick with? 100+ hr investments that still seem fresh in my mind, and I don't need to go back when new games are still to be played.
